I get that rules are rules and this is a rule:
Fulton’s suspension is based off of an alleged tampering violation that occurred following the 2016 season.
The NCAA rulebook states, “A student-athlete who is involved in a case of clearly observed tampering with an NCAA drug-test sample, as documented per NCAA drug-testing protocol by a drug-testing crew member, shall be charged with the loss of a minimum of two seasons of competition in all sports and shall remain ineligible for all regular-season and postseason competition during the time period ending two calendar years (730 days) from the date of the tampering.”
… but does anyone find the NCAA’s priorities here a little out of whack? Two years for pee-tampering, nothing for assault?
